The Black Harvest Film Festival is partnering with The Virtual Networking Tank and Creative Cypher to create a fantastic one-to-one virtual networking event for filmmakers and creatives. Register and request meetings to whoever you like, after having seen the bio, profile picture, job position and location of the other attendees from Chicago, Los Angeles and other world renowned film hubs. Participants include writers, actors, composers, producers, directors and crew members. Move your project forward by connecting with the necessary like-minded professionals. Powered by Creative Cypher.

TVNT - The Virtual Networking Tank is a new online technology that allows professionals to meet one-to-one in an easy and safe environment. You request the meetings ahead of time after scrolling through the list of attendees (you pick who and when to meet). TVNT shows the available 30 minutes time-slots that match the other person's schedule for you to pick one and will automatically create a private ZOOM room for every accepted meeting. The day of the event you'll virtually attend all your scheduled one-to-one meetings.

The Black Harvest Film Festival 26 Merchandise Collection 
Classic Style For Contemporary Artists
 
The Black Harvest 26 Collection pays homage to the iconic films that have been exhibited to the arts community for 26 years in a modern style. Designed by Rachel S. Gadson, founder of ILA Creative Studio, and produced by Tee Mart Decorated Apparel in Rogers Park, the collection features our one-of-a-kind t-shirts, hoodies, masks, hats, mugs and tote bags, all representing Black art. Best of all, 100% of the proceeds will go to Sista Afya Community Mental Wellness, an organization dedicated to fostering the mental health of Black Women through education and community support. 
 
“In recognizing that the emergence and inclusion of Black voices in film has been a constant [slow] progression, I wanted to embody imagery that translates movement. While the inclusion of our stories and representation of our lives has yet to reach its full scope, there's something to celebrate about the persistence we've shown over the years to continue to be seen, in spite of. The windowpane treatment is a direct metaphor that invites viewers to see us...all of us. The abstract treatment of the 26 provides this nuanced look at movement in different directions. The sharp edges, the abrupt turns, all represent how we are not a monolith, we have different stories to tell, and the years tracking through this abstract 26 represent the varying stories that have been told over the years as we're in movement.” ~ Rachel S. Gadson, Founder of ILA Creative Studio, LLC
